I have previously shared our favorite recipe for ham and egg fried rice, and recently made a bacon and egg fried rice which was delicious. I used diced pancetta instead of regular bacon although you could use regular bacon if that’s what you had on hand. I also scrambled the eggs and cooked them separately and then added them to the rice mixture. Regardless of how you put this dish together it is a very quick meal. In under ½ hour you can have dinner on the table. I love meals that come together quickly and this bacon and egg fried rice is one of them!

Bacon and Egg Fried Rice


2 tsp. oil
2 ounce diced pancetta
4 scallions, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1- 5 ounce container of baby spinach
2 cup cooked brown rice
¾ cup frozen green peas
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
4 large eggs


Heat a wok over high heat Add 1 tsp. oil and swirl to coat the bottom of the wok. Add pancetta and stir fry until crisp, about one minute. Add scallions and garlic and stir fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and stir fry until wilted, about one minute. Add rice, peas, salt and black pepper and stir-fry until hot, 1-2 minutes.

Meanwhile heat the remaining 1 tsp. of oil in another nonstick skillet over medium heat and scramble the eggs until cooked. Add the scrambled eggs to the rice mixture and serve. This recipe makes four servings.
